Introducing Krav Maga anti-bullying youth program
Krav Maga Houston’s anti-bully program emphasizes non-violent solutions to bully situations, with physical solutions prescribed only when all other options have been exhausted, and a physical threat is imminent. The curriculum teaches students to be a buddy rather than a bully, to be an upstander rather than a bystander, and uses role play to teach both. All students will learn polite greetings, situational awareness, non-verbal communication and verbal de-escalation techniques to prevent bullying of themselves, and others. Krav Maga reinforces earned self-confidence, functional fitness, tactical language, self-defense and leadership skills to help your child effectively take on life’s many challenges.
Krav Maga Houston’s Youth Program builds and re-enforces three critical skills for children.
- Fitness as a lifestyle,
- Mental Toughness as a default setting,
- Respect for Self and Others.
These three domains offer kids a huge advantage as they mature and grow, as the world becomes more competitive, and as the realities of life are experienced. These skills are taught through a Krav Maga and Striking framework with an emphasis on using non-violent tactics when possible but having a skill set to protect oneself and others if necessary.
MOTOR SKILLS: address all 10 domains of fitness (strength, speed, endurance, agility, balance, coordination, stamina, power, flexibility and accuracy) through a broad range of functional movements and exercises.
SELF PROTECTION: We teach elements of REAL self-defense, utilizing movements from Boxing, Muay Thai, Freestyle and Greco-Roman Wrestling, Judo and Jujitsu to form the core of the program. These elements are combined with the scenario-based defensive tactics of Krav Maga to help safeguard your child from bullies and other potential threats.
MENTAL TOUGHNESS: We challenge your child with individual and team fitness events. We celebrate both personal victories and competitive successes. We teach the value of hard work and illustrate the payoffs in improved performance, enchances self-efficiency, and the respect earned from others inside and outside the class. Krav Maga Houston’s Youth Program creates an environment where kids can learn and live some of life’s most valuable lessons.
